I have read several Amish titles by Beth Wiseman, so I became intrigued when I learned about her newest book had a contemporary setting. I eagerly signed up to review The House that Love Built, which I received free of charge from Litfuse Publicity Group and Thomas Nelson in exchange for my honest review.
Brooke Holloway has been raising her two children, ten-year-old Spencer and six-year-old Meghan, by herself in Smithville, Texas ever since her husband, Travis, died two years ago. Life has been tough for her and the kids. Her mother briefly moved in to help out after Travis's death, but now she lives at the Oaks Retirement Villa. Despite her mother's advice to start dating, Brooke doesn't want to fall in love as Travis was the love of her life.
After Owen Saunder's bitter divorce, he buys the old Hadley mansion and plans on restoring it, which was his cheating wife's dream and out of spite, it is now his dream. There is a rumor of a hidden bunker somewhere in the house or on the property and the mystery intrigues him. Falling in love was the last thing on his mind that is until he meets Brooke Holloway.
